The Finish Line

















Here I was trying to touch up these prints with charcoal and cray-pas, and I was not happy with the results. They looked awful. I was ready to start all over and print them again. It didn't occur to me to just use the INK that I had printed them with, until my studio neighbor, John Knight, came in and suggested it! Logic so often eludes me! Duh. So I painted over areas of the prints with the waterbased ink, and now they are ready for THE WINDOW. Yay. Now I have to figure out if I'm hanging them with clips, or velcro...
If money were no object I would have beautful big frames made. I also need to figure out the rest of the installation. The next (and last!) time I post about this it will be in the window!

I'm still waiting to hear from Deb Whitney about my set-up date. It'll probably either be Friday or early next week. I'll let you know! :^)
